[INTRO]
 
 C#m
 (Huh)
 C#m
 (Ooh)
 
 [VERSE ONE]
 C#m
 I miss the days when no one even knew my name
 C#m
 Now everywhere I go I wear a hat to hide my face
 C#m
 I got weapons hidden inside every room in my place
 C#m
 Now I have to keep a pistol on me always just in case
 C#m
 This is a nightmare, never expected the fame
 C#m
 To be something I would wrestle with and fight to embrace
 C#m
 Sometimes I feel like the love I gеt's outweighed by the hatе
 C#m
 I hid the tears, but I can't hide from the pain
 C#m
 I'm workin' 20 hour days, can't even lie to y'all, I'm burnt out
 C#m
 I sleep on my weight bench, tryna find the strength to work out
 C#m
 Should be happy I'm successful, I just went and bought my first house
 C#m
 Thought money would help cure my depression, but it's worse, how?
 C#m
 Tired of it, lucky I don't have a manager 'cause I'd be firin' him
 C#m
 Tired of talkin' to other artists
 C#m
 Who just wanna tell me I'm inspirin' them
 C#m
 Parents keep tellin' me they have a kid
 C#m
 And they're thankful the child is admirin' me
 C#m
 Great, you wanna know how I feel?
 C#m
 I might kill myself before retiring


 [PRE CHORUS]
 C#m
 I'm in the clouds
 C#m
 I can't reach the ground
 C#m
 They're comin' in crowds
 C#m
 Blew me up like a balloon and let me

 [CHORUS]
 C#m
 Go
 C#m                                     A
 Watch me float away, well, I scream "no"
                                              C#m
 Every time I get close, they pull out their phones
 C#m
 Like, "Maybe this time we can see him explode"
 C#m
 Blew me up like a balloon and let me go
 C#m                                                   A 
 They all throwin' rocks 'cause they're tryna poke holes
  A                                             C#m 
 They wanna see me pop, they don't wanna see me blow
 C#m
 They're the reason that I'm gone, they don't wanna see me glow
 C#m
 Blew me up like a balloon and left me
 
 [VERSE TWO]
 C#m
 I miss the times when I could go outside
 C#m
 I didn't have to watch my back out of the corner of my eye
 C#m
 I didn't have to fake a smile and pose for pictures all the time
 C#m
 Can't even lie, I miss when time was really mine
 C#m
 Now I just belong to everybody else but me
 C#m
 These panic attacks are makin' it awful hard to breathe
 C#m
 Built a vocal booth inside the crib and stopped makin' beats
 C#m
 Don't even rap, I stand inside of it and scream
 C#m
 Like this is not what I expected, I worked my hands to the bone
 C#m
 And my anxiety is triggered by the apps on my phone
 C#m
 I tried deleting them so the Internet would leave me alone
 C#m
 But the lack of attention made me feel worse than before
 C#m
 I'm sick of it all, the internet watchin' me trip when I fall
 C#m
 Embarrassed that everyone witnesses all
 C#m
 My illnesses in real time, man, I'm addicted to y'all
 C#m
 Rappers on Twitter don't get me involved
 C#m
 I'm posing for photos with fans in the mall
 C#m
 I'm dying inside, pretending I'm strong
 C#m
 I'm not a celebrity, I am just Tom
 
 [PRE CHORUS]
 C#m
 I'm in the clouds (Huhuhuhuhuh)
 C#m
 I can't reach the ground (Huh)
 C#m
 They're comin' in crowds (Fuck)
 C#m
 Blew me up like a balloon and let me  (I just can't do this shit anymore)

 [CHORUS]
 C#m
 Go
 C#m                                     A
 Watch me float away, well, I scream "no"
                                              C#m
 Every time I get close, they pull out their phones
 C#m
 Like, "Maybe this time we can see him explode"
 C#m
 Blew me up like a balloon and let me go
 C#m                                                   A 
 They all throwin' rocks 'cause they're tryna poke holes
  A                                             C#m 
 They wanna see me pop, they don't wanna see me blow
 C#m
 They're the reason that I'm gone, they don't wanna see me glow
 C#m
 Blew me up like a balloon and left me
 
 [VERSE THREE]
 C#m
 I miss the years when every Friday wasn't spent with my therapist
 C#m
 Then I realized I hated fame and accepted that I'm scared of it
 C#m
 I got Ativan, Cipralex, Xanax and Seraquel
 C#m
 In a Tupperware container, I don't touch, I just stare at 'em
 C#m
 Breathin' exercises supposed to help me to cope
 C#m
 But nothin' works quite as good as a bottle of jack and a smoke
 C#m
 I try to focus on my breath but it gets stuck in my throat
 C#m
 This never happened back when I was young and happy and broke
 C#m
 I never thought I'd be the rapper all these rappers try to be
 C#m
 Posting twenty times a day, now I don't have no privacy
 C#m
 Meeting with these major labels, CEOs with giant teams
 C#m
 If y'all wanna do business, why are y'all tryna lie to me?
 C#m
 I'm bored of the fame
 C#m
 Every time it feels fresh again I'm gettin' more of the same
 C#m
 Interviewers think they know who I am
 C#m
 They made up their mind before I explain
 C#m
 Well, because you asked so nice, I guess I'll tell
 C#m
 Ain't been feelin' too hot lately, Jim, is there anything else? Great
 C#m
 'Cause lately every day I feel like I'm livin' in hell
 C#m
 I'm glad the music helps you, but I might really kill myself
 C#m
 When this magazine gets printed, can you send one to my house?
 C#m
 I'd like to own a tiny piece of me like everybody else
 
 [CHORUS]
 C#m
 Go
 C#m                                     A
 Watch me float away, well, I scream "no"
                                              C#m
 Every time I get close, they pull out their phones
 C#m
 Like, "Maybe this time we can see him explode"
 C#m
 Blew me up like a balloon and let me go
 C#m                                                   A 
 They all throwin' rocks 'cause they're tryna poke holes
  A                                             C#m 
 They wanna see me pop, they don't wanna see me blow
 C#m
 They're the reason that I'm gone, they don't wanna see me glow
 C#m
 Blew me up like a balloon and left me
